NIFS Annual Reports highlight our achievements against measurable indicators, in key priority areas, as identified in the ANZPAA NIFS Business Plans.
More information on the history of SMANZFL can be found in the 2008 journal article by Mr Alastair Ross, A brief history of SMANZFL on the 21st anniversary of its formation (Australian Journal of Forensic Sciences 40:1, 31-35).
NIFS Business Plans are developed in close consultation with ANZFEC and set out the extensive ongoing work program and new projects, as approved by the ANZPAA Board, for the current financial year.
The NIFS Strategic Plan is designed to complement the broader ANZPAA Strategic Plan and, in doing so, incorporates the agency’s broader priorities and values. The document guides NIFS in continuing to deliver high quality, specialist forensic science capabilities to policing, support the exchange of forensic information, enhance education and training, and promote quality through practitioner certification, proficiency testing and standards development.
